-stakes of the first debate has candidates leaving. nothing to chance. president obama and governor romney racing to get in last minute prep before going face-to-face first debate next wednesday in denver that is. what should we expect? let's ask bill kristol, editor of "the weekly standard" and byron york, chief political correspondent for the "washington examiner". welcome to you both. byron, i'll start with you. what does romney have to do to show up roads in here. even voters say they don't expect him to win? >> well the thing, he has to do the same thing he had to do all along which present himself as a good alternative to the president who will take the country in a different direction than the president and can point out the numerous flaws in the president's record. i mean, i wonder whether romney has actually been preparing too much. he has been doing enormous amount of this stuff. he did a unabout much of debates in the republican primaries. it got to where he was quite sharp. whether he is lost his edge by now i don't know. gerri: bill, you've been very critical of romney saying that in
remember officials on the field for tonight's game. >> duelling campaign. president obama and mitt romney take the race for the white house to the key state of virginia today. >>> mona lisa 1.0. there's evidence that leonardo davinci created the original version of the iconic paint this this is the "cbs morning news" for thursday, september 27, 2012. good morning. good to be with you. i'm terrell brown. when the baltimore ravens and cleveland browns take the field tonight the nfl's regular officiating crews will be calling the game. at the stroke of midnight the league and referees ended a three month lockout of the officials. the deal was struck after two days of marathon negotiations and controversial call to the end of monday night's game. after a series of miscalls, run ins with coaches and players, and on field confusion, the nfl referees are heading to the sideline. the league and officials union agreed on a tentative eight year contract that will put the normal officiating crews back on field. goodell said we look forward to having the finest officials in sports back on field. now
's a margin of error race. in other words, that'd code for romney's behind and that's why they're making comments like this one. >> the question was if we lose ohio, could we still win. say if and buts were candy and nuts, every day would be christmas. >> make no mistakes. ohio, big problem for romney. >>> speaking of the two candidates, while they're both in ohio today, yesterday obama and romney rivalled the muppets and tried to take manhattan. they jammed as much as they could during competing visits to the big apple, a whirlwind day of media appearances. it was hard to miss them either physically in new york or on the tv. >> i'm just supposed to be eye candy here for you guys. >> the two traded few actual barbs. instead they did more subtle contrasts on the serious issues like the middle east and education and even less serious topics like who could best suck up to the former president, bill clinton. their sharpest and most substantive change was on iran. united nations, the president appeared to draw a real line in the sand on iran's efforts to build a nuclear weapon. >> so let me b
this race start to tighten and then move in governor romney's direction. come thursday morning, the entire narrative of the race will change. >> congressman paul ryan was pressed to explain the republican approach to tax policy during an interview yesterday. >> you're the master of the budget. briefly, let's go through the plan. the obama camp says independent groups say if you cut those tax rates for everybody, 20%, it costs $5 trillion over ten years. true? >> not in the least bit true. look, this just goes to show if you torture statistics enough, they'll confess to what you want them to confess to. >> how much does it cost? >> it's neutral. >> we'll get to the deductions. the cut in tax rates. >> lowers all americans tax rates. >> how much does that cost? >> it's revenue neutral. >> it's not revenue neutral unless it takes away -- >> lowering tax rates by broadening the tax base -- >> you haven't given me the math? >> it would take me too long to go through all the math. >>> in massachusetts tonight, senator scott brown and his democratic challenge elizabeth warren face off in the seco
think that mitt romney is in a position to win this presidential race. i think it is very important that he stop acting like a candidate and start acting like the president of the united states. what i would have had him do today is be meeting with these four leaders as the president refused to do and give that differentiation between the president of the united states sitting there on a talk show talking about being eye candy and having mitt romney meeting with leaders to try and solve these problems. that is what will be hit -- see him do. lou: and yet, and yet president obama, despite brushing aside the prime minister, despite just simply refusing to meet with any number of the leaders who one would have believed, as we pointed out, are from that statement by the candid obama some five years ago, really. it just makes no sense, what is happening here that suddenly the campaign takes priority over the business of state. >> well -- lou: and there is no comment in the mainstream media. >> well, the mainstream media has totally brushed anything this president has done a side of what
week and we'll detail that with the weather forecast in a few minutes. >> and now to the race for the white house. we're a few days away from the first debate between barack obama and mitt romney. both candidates are looking for a tense face-to-face showdown and we get the latest -- latest from brian mooar. >> after going to church, mitt romney hunkered down for the first dress rehearsal of the presidential debate. it's an important opportunity to reboot his campaign and reintroduce himself to the american people. >> i think debates matter psychologically to the country and are the most viewed single event in the campaign and i think it's always a burden on the challenger, it isn't about romney but about the challenger. >> and about both campaigns looking for a knockout punch. >> come thursday morning the narrative of this race will change. >> the narrative now is president obama has a lead in all nine of the key battleground states and romney is trying to get back on message. >> we've had some missteps but at the end of the day, the choice is really clear, and we're giving pe
to mitt romney and diverting it to these house and senate races where they think they can help republicans keep the house and maybe pick up seats in the senate, maybe take the senate. ashley: so they're losing heart in the campaign. >> reporter: clearly there is a trend out there where they are, and the money is starting to shift. now, this trend is lot of people -- these same people that i'm talking to, i will say these are major fundraisers for mitt romney, and they raise for other people, republicans, and not only that, they are pretty tight inside the campaign. what they're saying is they think this trend could be reversed. what could reverse this trend? a really good debate performance. what could expedite -- and that debate, as you know, comes wednesday. what could expedite this trend? a really lousy debate performance. ashley: no pressure. >> reporter: you're clearly going to see republican donors, at least they have the sentiment, they've expressed the sentiment that they are -- if they can't take the money they already gave 'em out of the coffer, some of that money that they give
for mitt romney, because your polling two months ago showed us that mitt romney was actually doing well on the issue of the economy. what happened? >> well, first of all, the race hasn't changed as much as the current hike suggests. it has tilted a little bit against mitt romney. we're still showing it tied nationally at 46%, romney is down by a point in ohio. that's not great news for him, but it's not a sea change in the race. what's happened? people are feeling better about the economy. consumer confidence is up, and people have not been convinced that mitt romney would be any better than barack obama. cheryl: but you know what, scott? 60% of americans right now believe that we're in a recession still. i mean, maybe we're not technically in one, but americans still feel that way. explain to me the numbers behind this. >> well, 60% say we're still in a recession, that's not a great number. it was over 70% a couple of years ago, so the trend is moving a little bit better. the number of people who say the economy will be stronger in a year is 36% now, that's up a little bit from earlier
steady showers has a feel of a race against time. a new poll quinnipiac finds romney trailing the president by ten points in ohio, nine points in florida and 12 in pennsylvania. an abc "the washington post" poll may explain why. 54% said they had an unfavorable view of romney's comments on voters who don't pay taxes. romney told cnn he's not worried about the numbers. >> we're taking our message to the people of ohio and across the country. and polls go up and down. but frankly you're going to see the support that i need to become president on election day. >> reporter: but he's facing some strong economic headwinds in ohio where the governor, john casic, touted his state's recovery at a romney event. >> i hope you all know ohio's coming back from 48th in job creation to number four. number one in the midwest. >> reporter: joined by gulf legend and ohio native jack nicholas, romney said the president shouldn't get a mulligan or do-over. >> now there's over $16 trillion in debt. if he were re-elected, i can assure you almost $20 trillion in debt. >> reporter: asked about the fi

state telling anchor chris wallace, governor romney will win come november. and one of his most outspoken supporters, new jersey governor chris christie, also making a bold prediction that governor romney will do very well and his performance could change the whole race. here is governor christy from earlier today. >> he's going to come in wednesday night and have his vision for america and he's to contrast what his view is and the president's record is and the president's view for the future and the race will be turned upside down thursday morning. >> harris: we'll kick off our coverage with campaign carl cameron. and republicans are trying to draw a distinction betweening mr. obama and the republicans leading up to wednesday night. >> they have and mitt romney has been doing his level best to kind of lowering expectation. the enthusiasm from chris christie and paul ryan may be run counter to the candidate's desire and lower the bar and make it easier for him to appear to overachieve. the romney campaign recognizes the polls haven't been going their way and talked a long time t

this race really start to tighten and then move in governor romney's direction. come thursday morning, the entire narrative of this race is going to change. >> it is the top of the hour. a beautiful morning here in new york city. welcome back to "morning joe." mark halperin and john heilemann are still with us. and joining the set, nbc news's tom brokaw, good to have you with us. >> so mika, we need some help. >> we do. >> from viewers. e-mail us. >> or tweet. >> what's the best e-mail or tweet? what's the best one for us? >> joe@msnbc.com. >> tom brokaw believes, like espn, we need to brand events, we need to brand this wednesday debate. tom, you suggested the rocky mountain rumble. i like that. we had the donnybrook in denver from mark halperin. >> and yours was? >> the mile high. >> that's just a story. we need some suggestions. >> there's our twitter address. >> but you're going, though. >> i'm on my way today. >> what are you looking for? >> i'm going to spend time with undecided voters in golden, colorado, still is a battleground state. we want to hear what they're looking for o
the ryan pick as i said, very nice move in the polls for mitt romney. that was a real strengthening moment. what do you see as the major factor that brought us to the numbers we're at right now in this race? >> i think romney's had a struggle the last couple weeks. obviously the 47% thing last week was not good. i think he is getting back in his groove. there is sufficient time to get this thing back on track. it's a narrow place where he has to go to win but i think it is all there. he just has to execute. he now has maximum television everywhere. they have a very strong ground game as does the obama team. it is really identifying voters and get them out and they're voting already. key thing, 30, 40% of the voters will vote before election day. you have to make sure everyone of those that are your voters get out to the polls. martha: what about this notion there is battle going on for white male votes? that they went obama basically in 2008, swung back during the midterms and voted for republican candidates during the midterm elections? you know is that, are they undecided this time aroun
't in tracking numbers. the romney campaign is right to point out that horse race numbers move. did you know that last month mitt romney was leading barack obama on who do trust on jobs by 14 points? and right now, he's trailing by six points on the jobs question. >> why is that? >> i'll tell you why. i think the reason is not anything that's happened in the job market, but, rather, and there's a silver lining here for the romney folk, but rather that their campaign has been totally weak over the last three, four weeks and it has really reduced the notion of mitt romney as a credible challenger. you're not going to win right how when you're down six on jobs. >> he's not talking about his program. i agree with everything you said, but he can turn this around by convincing people next week in denver that he believes in this program, it's a jobs program, because every poll is showing americans think the economy is lousy. they just don't believe that mitt romney has a plan to turn things around. >> and they don't believe mitt romney. >> and he's changing the plan. these guys are calling me, and
reporting. i'm deborah feyerick at cnn world >>> a mad dash to the end of the race. president barack obama and governor mitt romney get ready for a face-off at this week's first debate. >>> plus a couple of big surprises from arnold schwarzenegger who talks candidly about his childhood and the housekeeper. >>> and an epic fail by the united states. after being up for a significant lead, the guys in the ryder cup lose big, berman. >> it was a disaster. complete meltdown. well, still, good morning. and welcome to october, everyone. this is "early start." i'm john berman in washington this morning. >> and i'm sir riesirita simon. >>> president barack obama and mitt romney square off wednesday night in denver. both trying to lower expectations practically gushing over one another, but new jersey governor chris christie is going against the grain and setting the bar high for the republican nominee. >>er time mitt romney has been confronted in this campaign with one of these moments, he has come through in a debate and performed extraordinarily well laying out his vision very clearly and also co
obama -- one of them has romney up by one point. the rest are a very close race within the margin of error, one point, three points, four points, four points, one for five points. a poll came out that shows the president is up nine points. here's how they got there. they have nine percentage point more democrat turnout than republican. it's a fantasy. in the 2008 obama landslide it was advantage for the democrats of just three points. republicans won florida in 2004, republicans turned out by four percentage points more. you just can't have those kind of swings, the numbers aren't reliable. >> cornell, what do you make -- >> i think what really is going on, i don't disagree with what john said about what's driving it but i think you're within the margin of error in almost every one of those battleground states. >> cornell, what about the florida numbers? >> i do understand what republicans are trying to do. i mean, they do have to sort of make this argument against the media that the media's biased in a way favoring democrats, regardless of what history has shown, they have to mak
-new race. >> so, responding to that the president said governor romney's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> right. >> he was sort of going the other direction. you heard chris christie say it's going to go extraordinarily well. it's going to be turned upside down. it's a restart of the campaign. it's a brand-new race. those are all quotes from that clipate there. is that risky for him to do that? >> look i think he set the bar high for mitt romney. and the bar should be high for mitt romney. i mean he's gone through this campaign. we're five weeks out, soledad, and he has not said how he'd pay for his tax plan. we're five weeks out he hasn't said how he'll shore up medicare or social security to protect benefits instead of cutting them. so the bar is really high for him. i think chris christie set it even a little higher. let's be clear, mitt romney is a terrific debater. i mean, he des patched newt gingrich from the race in florida based on debate performances there. did the same -- >> and the president is also a good debater in spite of his pleas that he's just okay. i don't think any
, and this is an interesting race for many reasons in virginia. the problem in virginia for the romney campaign is they're on the defensive on all the issues, on theeconomy, women's issues, national security, all of issues that are important they're on the defensive right they don't have an iue opening to pressba campaign on in virginia. they're behind on the economy, which was supposed to be president obama's weakness. so i think they're really in trouble in virginia we've seen a slip on the part of the romne campaign since the conventionsohart convention bounces, it turned into a convention slide in virginia. we have a series of polls out now that show the gap widening between obama and romney. i think the rney campaign needs to find anpening, a ga to shoot in virginia on that issue. they need to press that gap. >> it's interesting you say that the spokesperson for the rnc in saz said obviously in 2008 we got our clock cleaned here and got caught flat foolted. we're just casng a real wide atyokef that statement, professor? >> well, it may be a wide net, but it's not capturing anything. in the latest
had another take. >> thursday morning the entire narrative of the race will change. >> in an interview, anne romney reveals the greatest concern if her husband becomes president. >> my biggest concern would be for the, his mental well being. i have all the confidence in the world in his ability, in his decisiveness and leadership skills. >> reporter: today paul ryan admitted to campaign missteps including the 47% comment. >> we have had somis steps but at the end of the day the choice is really clear and we are giving people very clear choice. >> reporter: ryan was asked to discuss the specifics of the campaign tax plan. both romney and ryan have yet to tail how they would finance a 20% tax cut. >> it would take me too long to go through all of the math. >> that was kristin walker reporting. >>> it is time for fact or fiction segment checking the candidates claims against the facts. we will start with prauchl and his claim that taxes are lower on families than they have been in probably the last 50 years. that's not entirely true. average tax rates were slight lower in 1 '64, '63 and 2
poll irsthe "washington post" finds pe race still very tight nationwide with president obama leading mitt romney by two rints, 49% to 47%. but in two of the biggest swing tes thatthe states that will decide the election, the resident has a bigger lead. in florida, a quinnipiac university/cbs news/"new york times" poll has the president ahead by nine points, 53% to 44%. in ohio he leads governor romney by ten points, 53% to 43%. john dickerson is our cbs news political director. jo john, some republicans are areplaining these polls aren't ren'ting an accurate picture. do they have a case? se reporter: well, they have a >>se when they remind us that polls are a snapshot in time and that things can change. howly what we should look at in polls is the trends and how things are moving over time, the orrrents. and right now those favor barack obama. the polls are really more like a painting than they are a digital photograph. one of the other complaints is that pollsters are talking to too many democrats. in 2004 democrats said pollsters were talking to too many oepublicans. it's a standar
, the presidential race for the white house has stolen the headlines. he already knows he's voting for. >> i think romney offers a set of policy proposals which will grow the economy, of the port of poverty, all of the middle-class and provide jobs for the american people. >> republican candidate mitt romney want lower taxes and less government intervention. that's something this family agrees with, particularly when it comes to health care reform very >> health care is not our right in the sense we don't authorize the government to take for other people to provide the american people with health care. healthcare is a privilege. >> but this obama supporters sees a different america. he says the government is not giving people the help they need. >> health care is not a privilege. health-care is right. playing golf is a privilege. you don't have to play golf. >> he can afford to buy private insurance for themselves and his family, but as a presbyterian minister, he often crop -- often comes across people his lights have been turned upside down by the economic crisis. that's why a lot with most of t
conceivable given the midterm elections and how close the race has been the last few months. it is close. the romney campaign does not dispute that. president obama has an advantage, and they do not dispute that. they say will debates are important and neither side will throw out the best argument, their biggest ammunition, until the debates, four weeks consecutively, in october, unfold. having said that, governor romney today in ohio with three public stops. that is rare for him. he is upping the schedule as he is increasing the rhetoric and escalating attacks on the president. here is a sample from today. listen. >> talk is cheap. you can be extraordinarily eloquent and describe all the wonderful things you can do. when you cut through the words, you can look at the record. when you can see policies that have not created the jobs america needs, you know it is time to choose a new leader, get a new coach, get america growing again. >>carl: romney told the crowd they should not expect big tax cuts and there will be a reduction or elimination of a variety of deductions. it is not like the
science professor in virginia. thank you so much for your time. we have romney and obama in virginia right now. we have this segment called purple rain for a rain. it's solidly purple, and this is an interesting race for many reasons in virginia. what are you watching? >> the problem in virginia for the romney campaign is they're on the defensive on all the issues, on the economy, women's issues, national security, all of issues that are important they're on the defensive right now. they don't have an issue opening to press the obama campaign on in virginia. they're behind on the economy, which was supposed to be president obama's weakness. so i think they're really in trouble in virginia. we've seen a slip on the part of the romney campaign since the convention, so whatever that convention bounces, it turned into a convention slide in virginia. we have a series of polls out now that show the gap widening between obama and romney. i think the romney campaign needs to find an opening, a gap to shoot in virginia on that issue. they need to press that gap. >> it's interesting you say that the
the trajectory of races. so don't screw up. that's rule number one. but rule number two, if you are mitt romney when you go into this debate you need to change the trajectory of this. you can't do it by being a human fact checker. but what you can do is remember you are talking to tens of millions of american voters that night and whatever the question is, whatever obama says, mitt romney has to make sure he puts a simple clear statement of his views and his beliefs about the future of the united states on the record. it's his chance to put it on the record so he can't screw around. >> i would recommend him not telling too many jokes. he needs to be very careful. >> this economy is no laughing matter. i think most people will be be watching this debate in the hope of who they can feel they can trust this me in the hand of for the next four years. that is why i think governor romney overperforms what some of these sceud polls seem to indicate. our economy has thought been rescued. megyn: the president's approval ratings on the economy have been going up. >> the bottom line is you do have a situa
's tourn the the presidential race. republicans are tearing out their hair trying to figure out why the romney campaign can't seem to get out of its own way. could the answer be mitt romney? we will debate that next up on kudlow. to the cheaters" vo: tough on china? not mitt romney. when a flood of chinese tires threatened a thousand american jobs... it was president obama who stood up to china and protected american workers. mitt romney attacked obama's decision... said standing up to china was "bad for the nation and our workers." how can mitt romney take on the cheaters... when he's taking their side? >>> welcome back to "the kudlow report." i'm larry kudlow. in this half hour, you have to hear this late-breaking news. president obama blocked a chinese company from owning four wind farm projects in northern oregon. the reason -- apparently national security concerns. plus, our president has been touting his so-called new plan. he named it "patriotic economics." want a clue what it may be like? parlez vous fracais? . gop supporters can try to int blame clint eastwood's empty chair
